Solution: Taxol is a remarkable new weapon in the war against cancer. Isolated from the bark of the Pacific Yew, it has been shown to be highly effective against refractive ovarian and breast cancers. Due to the extremely low concentrations of it found in nature, a great deal of effort has gone into alternative ways of obtaining it. The Taxol nucleus has the molecular formula C32H40O11. If a 115 mg sample of Taxol were subjected to combustion, calculate both the amount of carbon dioxide and water (in mg) expected.
